THE PRODUCTS GENERATED BY IER’s CAT-HTR PROCESS



Independent analysis of IER’s micronised coal has found it to be at least comparable to medium-volatility pulverised coal injection (or ‘PCI’) coal (see Table 1).

IER has also demonstrated, through continuous testing lasting up to five days at a time at an independent process development company as well as independent academic laboratories, that under near standard refinery conditions it can successfully process its syncrude when blended with fossil oil into various standard refinery streams that are indistinguishable from their pure fossil oil analogues.

PATH FORWARD



IER is seeking to place a commercial scale module of its Cat-HTR system alongside an existing mine in Victoria. The Somersby CDP is now showing a clear pathway to this commercial module.
